Sound Healing for Chakras


Sound Healing for Chakras

You have probably noticed how you feel when you are listening to your favourite music. It uplifts you and puts you in a good mood, right? Music has sound vibrations that affect your body. Do you know that some specific sound frequencies can balance your chakras and that these frequencies are used in sound healing? 

Sound healing is a therapy used to bring balance to the chakras by using specific frequencies that reverberate through your body. The frequencies make the chakras vibrate, and that align to those frequencies. When your chakras are in balance, your body, mind, and spirit are full of vitality and health. 

Sound healing is a therapy modality that uses sound to balance your body, mind and spirit. Sound healing works by balancing the chakras. It aligns the chakras to their sound frequency so that they can allow energy flow freely. 


What are chakras?

Chakras are intersections of energy in your body located along your spine. The energy channels bringing life energy to your chakras are called Nadis. They are like an energy network through your whole body. There are 72 000 Nadis, and they connect at seven major centres. 

These seven major energy centres or chakras are Root Chakra, Sacral Chakra, Solar plexus chakra, Heart Chakra, Throat Chakra, Third eye Chakra, and Crown Chakra.

Ancient cultures in India understood the way energy flows in the body and develop methods to work with these energies. The chakra system forms part of your energy body. The energy body has a vibrational frequency that acts as your life blueprint. 

When your chakras are in balance, the energy flows at the right frequency, and when your body is out of balance, you are out of sync. The chakras may be out of balance because too much energy is passing through them, or because not enough energy flows. 

When the chakras are in balance, you are in harmony, your health is good, and life, in general, flows better. You can have balance in your life and your relationships. Your whole being is in harmony, and you can experience fulfilment. When the chakras are out of balance or blocked, you will experience emotional distress or disease.


Chakra healing with sound

Life experiences cause us trauma, fears, and insecurities that upset our energy body. When this happens our life force, or prana doesn’t flow freely, it gets stuck in some areas, or maybe it doesn’t receive enough energy. When this happens, your chakras are not balanced, and you are more prompt to physical and mental ailments.

You can bring balance to your chakras with sound. Each chakra vibrates to a specific frequency. When you give that same frequency to your body, your chakra realigns to it, and you will get the energy you need to be vibrant and healthy. 

Sound healing is a therapy that uses sound frequencies to harmonised the mind and body of a person. There is a tremendous amount of sound instruments you can use to heal your chakras.

Tibetan singing bowls, gongs and tuning forks are the most ancient and popular instruments used for chakra healing. A newer variation is the crystal singing bowls and crystal pyramids. 

During a sound healing session, the sound healer can use many different musical instruments to balance your chakras.

The typical musical instruments used for sound healing are drums, rattles, hand pan, wooden flute, Koshi chimes, bells, guitar and any other tool to tune a specific chakra. 

You can also use your voice and mantra chanting to balance your chakras. Make sure you are playing the right musical note for each of your chakras. 


Sound healing frequencies for chakras

In school, you probably learned about light and sound. Both are waves that can travel in the air. To perceive them, you need your hearing and sight senses. 

When you see a red object, the frequency of light reflecting from that object is resonating with your eyes’ ability to see colour. The same happens when you hear music, the musical notes resonate in your eardrum so you can listen to them. 

In the same way, each of your chakras reacts to a specific frequency. The chakras respond to particular frequencies; this is known as harmonic resonance.

This harmonic resonance occurs because the wave of a frequency comes into contact with the chakra that is tuned to that same frequency. It causes the chakra to vibrate at the same frequency as the wave.  

Chakras can be influenced by colour and sound. So mantras, colour and visualisations can have a positive effect on your chakras.
